SEWERS UNDER LOCAL
IMPROVEMENT PLAN
Amendment to Bylaw Passed Committee of the Council
Providing for Trunk Lines to Come Out of
General Fund However.
Under the amendment to the local
improvement general bylaw which
passed the committee stage in the
city council last evening, it will be
possible to put in main trunk sewers
in the city out of general revenue,
while tiie lateral systems will be put
ln as works of local improvement.
When the council went into committee on tiie amendment, Aid. Hilditch again raised his voice against
the scheme proposed, advocating putting in the sewers out of general
fund. Under the general fund a
quarter of a million dollars could be
borrowed. This would be devoted
to the sewerage of the whole city. It
would insure other sections as well
as section, one getting a system. A
sewer rental would represent about
$4.25 a lot. At present these were
paying $24 a year for scavenger
work. The residents in the outlyin
parts would be out $19.75 a year
which was wasted, there being nothing  to  show  for  it.
Aid. Pattullo felt that any section
could come in under the local improvement scheme as well as under
the general  fund.
Aid. Naden agreed with the aspect
of the case as presented by Aid. Pattullo.
When the section excluding main
trunk sewers from the working of
this local improvement p'an came
up, Aid. Naden moved to strike it
out.
He favored making the tr nk sewers-payable under the local improvement plan as well as the lateral sewers. This would be done in section
one. If a main sewer were carried
up Hays Creek it would serve a large
part of several sections. If they all
went in on It il would cost no more
than under general fund.
Aid. Hilditch pointed out that
there would be sections that had not
yet been subdivided. How were these
to be charged up with sewer connection? He felt thai it would bo
belter even t i pay for all the sewers,
laterals as well as trunk sewers, out
of general  fund.
Aid. Lynch explained that having
gone into the question it was estimated that about $60,000 or $70,000
would pay for the main trunk sewers proposed.
Aid. Naden felt that the prices at
the sale were about two hundred per
cent higher for lots where the sewer
was provided. These purchasers paid
for the sewer so that it could not
be said now that these sections were
getting the sewers given to them.
Aid. Lynch stated that the engineer felt that surface drains should
be borne out of general fund.
Aid. Hilditch pointed out that If
the trunk line were provided for out
of general fund there was an inducement for those who would be served
to put in lateral sewers.   To have to
■ rovide the trunk sewers might pre
.ent a system be„,g provided. He
did not favor the local Improvement
plan for any of it, but it would certainly be detrimental to charge the
trunk lines up to local improvement,
The amendment of Aid. 'Naden
was lost and the bylaw will thus allow trunk sewers to be paid for out
of general fund.
The amending bylaw was reported
complete.
Earlier in the evening on motion
of Aid. Pattullo it was proposed to
provide for the payment of $7,279.80
for lateral sewers to be put in in em.
banknients during the construction
of the streets.
Aid. Lynch and Aid. Hildltch re
ferred to amendment to the local 1m-
provemeni bylaw that was coming
up.
Aid. Pattullo could not see any difference it would make. This proposal was to do the work now. Whatever plan was decided upon, the sewers would be paid for according to
the decision of the council.
Aid. Hilditch said he was In hopes
of seeing these sewers put in out of
general reevniie.. The council was
fast coming to this.   Aid. Lynch was
■ ■evii coming round to that view.
The motion carried.

Technical Question as to Prices Asked for Retaining
Wall Enters Into the Matter and Advantage
is Taken of it to Order New Bids
MAYORALTY CONTEST
OPENS SUDDENLY
William Manson Will be a Candidate While Alderman
Mobley Announces Himself
Also in the Field.
After a period of uneertainity as
to what the municipal situation
would be with respect to next year's
council, the anonuncement of two
mayoralty candidates came yesterday
somewhat suddenly. While it was
known that William Manson had the
matter under consideration in view
or ihe fact that liis supporters had
circulated a petition asking him to be
a candidate it was hardly expected
such a sudden acceptance would follow I lie presentation of it. The list
of citizens who made tho request that
he allow hlmsef to go into nomination was such, apparently, that he
felt that he could not well refuse
their wish.
Aid. Mobley a few minutes later
announced his intention of running.
Mayor Stork will not contest the
seat.
For a few days there has been
known to have been a general campaign in progress seeking Ihe feeling
of the citizens at large both for Mr.
Manson and Mayor Stork. At the
conclusion of this campaign and the
announcement that Mr. Manson
would run, the decision was quickly
arrived at that Mayor Stork should
not enter the contest but Aid. .Mobley
should seek election for the post.
Neither of the candidates has
given any announcement as to the
policy to be advocated by them, but
it  Is  anticipated  that   the   dividing
lines will develop as the campaign
goes on. Mayor Stork has endorsed
the candidature of Aid. Mobley,
which indicates that the policy of the
latter will be largely In line with
that which Mayor Stork would havo
advocated had he again been a candidate.
Mr. Manson has had many years
experience in municipal affairs In tbe
province. He served In the capacity
of alderman in Nanaimo for a time
and then for many successive years
filled the office of mayor, where he
won honor as a civic administrator,
lie brings a ripe judgment and long
experience to bear and should be a
model mayor for the rity In Its formative period.
Aid. Mobley Is personally popular
in the city.  He has served on the city
council since the Incorporation of Hie
place, giving a great deal of attention to the work of the city.   He has
given special attention to the water
and light department on which committee he served.   He has also been
one    of    the   police   commissioners
| charged  with  the administration   of
j that department, of the city's affairs.
On Tuesday evening next a smoker
! will   be   held   in   Mclntyre   Hall   to
which all the supporters of Mr. Man-
son are invited.   The candidate will
address the meeting and  there  will
be some other short addresses.   The
object of the gathering is to effect the
organization of the campaign.
.\i the meeting of the city council
last evening it was decided to call for
new tenders for the most of the work
on First avenue. The ground for this
was that there had arisen a technical
difficulty as to the price asked for
the retaining wall. The city engineer
in the specifications had included the
retaining wall, but had not specified
the quantity to be included in it
which left the tenderers at sea in
submitting bids. The council was by
no means unanimous in the decision
to call for new tenders, several insisting that it was most unfair, the
more so in view of the fact that there
was no error by the tenderers.
Contracts were let for one section
of First avenue, namely sub-sectitu
C, which was awarded to Mclnnes &
Kelly.
There were other pieces of work
also let in other parts of the city as
follows: —
Fourth avenue grading to be done
under the city engineer, and plank
roadway to be put in by E. C. La
Trace.
Eighth avenue between Fulton
street and the junction of Eighth,
Ninth and Comox streets, grading let
to L. Bressy & Co., and plank roadway to J. A. Gillis.
Ambrose street grading to P. Mc-
Closkey, and planking to P. McClos-
key.
These awards were all made on
the recommendation of the streets
committee. The committee added to
the report that it recomemnded that
section A, B, F and H, on First avenue should not be let as taking advantage of a technicality in the specification as to retaining walls the city
might be subjected to a loss of $4,-
iioo. The committee reconmended
that they call for new tenders with
a further recommendation in favor of
dividing the noil: into small seel ion
•o Hint statiw men might lie encouraged to takj up the work.
Aid. Hilditch explained that lie
was obliged to take the stand lie did
in view of the fact that the council
had decided by resolution against
considering bids that did not conform witli the specifications in all respects. 11 was not felt to be fair to
throw out tiie lowest tender altogether as Jhe specifications were not
complete owing to the mistake of the
city engineer, if anyone was to blame
for it.
Aid. -Mclntyre did not know that
the council had decided upon anything definite with respect to the retaining wall.
Aid. Lynch explained the situation
as far as the report was concerned.
Aid. .Mclntyre said it appeared the
specifications were incomplete.
Aid. Hilditch said that it seemed
unfortunate that there always was
trouble about these tenders. It had
been tried to overcome .this but there
always seemed'to be incomplete tenders. The call for tenders called for
a retaining wall, but It did not specify tlie quantity in the retaining wall.
When all the figures were considered i
it was decided by the committee to
report as it did.
Aid. Mobley wanted to know if al!
the forms of specifications called for
the retaining wall.
Aid. Lynch said it did.
Aid. Mobley said he was sure he
saw specifications without the retaining wall included.
Aid. Mobley referred io the section
but Aid. Lynch explained that tliis
but bore out the contention tli.it the
quantity was not included but that
there was provision for the tender
for retaining wall.
Aid. Lynch explained further thai
a number of private owners of properly preferred to put in the retaining walls. It then became uncertain
what quantity of retaining wall was [
to be fuilt.
Mr. Albert, of the Westholme
Lumber company, the lowest tender-!
ers, was present and asked permission to speak. He explained that it |
was impossible to give a set figure
for the work when the engineer could
not tell the contractor how many
yards of wall was to be built. It
would be relatively much cheaper to
build a large quantity than a small
amouni.
Aid. .Mobley felt that the legal aspect  of this should be entered  into.
It was at once explained by several
members of the council that it was
always specified that they did not require to accept any tender.
Aid. Smith advised letting to responsible parties. If contracts were
let in small sections to irresponsible
people they might find the work
spoiled by these men so that it would
cost more to complete the work than
it would originally. Mr. Albert had
quoted a price for the retaining wall
thai was not exorbitant at all. He
favored letting the contracts to the
lowest  tenderer.
Aid. hilditch felt that there was a
technical mistake for which the city
engineer was responsible more than
anyone else. Either the retaining
wall should not be included or it
should be set forth what the quantity
was. The commltete wished to give
the contract every time to the lowest
tender. He wanted this settled once
and for all so that the committee
could know what to do in future.
Aid. Xaden felt that the streets
committee had very carefuly considered this and lie fell the report
should   be  adopted.
.ud. Barrow as a member of the
streets committee did nol approve of
the necessity of laying down rules
from which the committee could not
deviate. If that were done the committee's duties were purely mechanical.
Aid. Pattullo seconded the motion
of Aid. Xaden in view of the fact
that the committee was unanimous
in this.
Aid. Mclntyre did not see a technical difficulty here.
Aid.   Mobley  felt  that   unless   the
sections were all re-divided the calling  for  tenders  would  work  an   injustice on the contractors who now
j knew  ail   the  figures  of  the  others.
Aid. Smith I'eli thai the prices being   all   known   created   a  difficulty.
He felt  it  would li.. better to let a
contract for Hie retaining walls and
| then award the contracts to the lowest bidders.
Aid. Lynch said that • 1 u■ recalling
; of  tenders   was   not   an   uncommon
tlu'i;.    if  Hie  work   were  broken   up
into smaller contracts  he could  see
no difficulty.
Aid. Hildltch said thai Hie ques-
lion that was bothering him in this
matter was the declaration of ihe
council thai al tenders must he in a
complete form. II the lenders were
in complete form than that of ihe
Westholme Lumber company was the
lowest. If the lenders were nol complete he felt that they must throw
them out. If the council decide these
tenders were complete then he would
favor letting lo the lowst. 11' they
were not complete then lie felt tbey
Should call lor new lenders.
Tbe motion to cull lor new tenders was carried.
Tiie tenders for all the works in
question were as follows:
Tenders for Eighth avenue between Fin,on and Comox streets were
received  as follows: —

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
MINING  IN BRITAIN
Interesting Statistics Relative  to the
Industry in Old
Land.
Decrease in Fatalities is Noticed ns a
Result of the Changed Conditions
| Prom Year to Year
In the second part of his report for
1909, issued by the home offic , the
chief inspector of mines deals briefly
with the operation of the eight hour
act of 190S, although what is known
as the "week-end difficulty" still
exists.
it is estimated that ln consequence
of the operation of the act in all the
districts, with the exception of North,
uiiiberland and Durham, 500,000 underground workers have had their
hours reduced by an aggregate of
2,290,000 per week, and that the
working time of 500 other workpeo-
plein tht coal mining industry has
been reduced by 6,400 hours per
week. The reduction has been greatest in Lancashire and Soutii Wales.
In Lancashire the coal getters rarely
worked overtime, but the repairers
were in the habit of working a quarter, and in some cases half, a day
over-time every time they went below
ground, and consequently the aggregate wages of such men were seriously reducd when the act came into
force. But the chief inspector has
no doubt that the patriotic action of
the Lancashire coal owners lu agreeing not to reduce the wages of the
datal hands in accordance with the
reduction of hours had a most beneficial and quieting effect throughout
the country.
It Is not yet possible to estimate
with any degree of certainty or correctness what have been the effects
on output, wages, and cost of the act,
as not only did more or less extensive
strikes take place in several districts
at the time of and subsequent to Its
introduction, but at the time it become operative and for some time
prior thereto, the coal trade) was
characterized by a falling market, so
that it is impossible to allocate to
each of the several agencies at work
its proper economic effect. The probable ultimate effects, however, will be
to give an impetus lo the machine
cutting of coal, acceleration in underground transport of coal, and better
order and discipline in getting the
workmen in and out of the mine.
During 1909 the total number of
persons employed at mines and quarries in the United Kingdom was
1,120,372, a net increase of 23,157
as compared with the previous year.
Of the persons employed at. mines
835,110 worked underground, and
207,319, including li,16S women and
girls, above ground.
There were 1,303 separate fatal accidents in and aboul mines and quarries, causing Ihe loss of 1,577 lives,
or an increase of lln fatalities as
compared with 190S. of these accidents, 1,220, causing the loss of
1,493 lives, happened at mines, and
S3, causing the loss of SI lives, at'
quarries. Expressed In the number
of persons employed, the death rate I
from accidents per 1,000 persons at
all mines was, for 1909, underground
1,621 (or surface and underground
1,432), against 1,467 underground |
(or 1,322 at surface and under-1
ground) for 190S. The gain in
safety over a long period of years is
evidenced by the fact that, reckoning from the year 1851 to 1905, each
quinquennial period shows a steady
decrease In the loss of life per 1,000
persons employed, that for the five
years ending '1905 being 1,287 as
compared with 4,301 for the five
years ending IS55. The average for
years ending 1S55. The average for
the four years ending 1909 was 1,342
per 1,000 persons employed. Last,
year the death rate per million tons
Of minerals raised was 5.23, as compared With 19 for the year 1851. The
mortality per million tons of coal
only in 1909 was 5.32.
No fewer than 159,590 workers ,
were Injured by accidents disabling
them for more than seven days. This
Is an Increase of 11,692 over the corresponding figure for 1908. A recent development ln mining which
seems to have added to the risk of
accidents Is the growth In the use
of electricity as a means of transmitting power. There were, for instance,
ln use at the end of the year 777
electrlcally-drlven coal-cutting machines, representing not less thnn
20,000 horsepower In the aggregate.
During the twelve months fifteen fatal accidents causing twnty-three
deaths were due to the use of electricity. The disaster at the West
Stanley Colliery, whereby 168 persons lost their lives, was also attributed to this agency.
Further developments have taken
place in respect to rescue work in
mines. Several new stations, organized by coalowners, for tbe training
of miners in rescue work with
breathing apparatus have reached
completion and the erection of others
is contemplated, but a great deal yet
lemains to be done both in this respect and as to training in general
rescue and ambulance work. Scotland and the South Midlands are particularly backward. In the former
one station only has been erected,
and no station for training miners
exists in Staffordshire, Shropshire,
Worcestershire, Leicestershire or
Warwickshire, though valuable experimental work is being carried out
in the model mine at the University
of Birmingham.
Several types of breathing apparatus are in use at rescue stations,
but It has not yet been finally determined which of them Is the most efficient. A knowledge of ambulance
work, adds the chief inspector, is,
perhaps, of greater value in mining
than in any other occupation, and
the subject is not being as widely
taught in the colliery districts as it
should be.
DOCTORS BAFFLED
Infantile Paralysis is Not Understood
by Medical Men as Yet
"The medical profession of the
world is still handicapped before the
scourage of infantile paralysis." This
statement was made last night at
the meeting of the Chicago Neurological Society by Dr. H. E. Robertson,
assistant professor of pathology in
the University of Minnesota. "We are
up against it," he said. "We have
not been able to cultivate the germs
in laboratories. We c.nnot even
diagnose the disease, for the first
certain symptoms is the paralysis of
the patient. The disease attacks the
strongest and moBt active children.
It is not confined to Infants. Many
victims are adults. The high fatality
is caused by reaching the acute stage
in three or four days. Up to that
time the symptoms might indicate
any infectious malady. There are no
definite symptoms and the only warning the practitioner has is the paralysis of his patient."
RHODES SCHOLARSHIPS

G. R.  Parkin, now secretary of the j selected students from each state of
Rhodes Scholarship Trust while in
Vancouver, on a tour which will take
him through the United States before he returns to the old country,
was interviewed relative to the
Rhodes scholarship scheme. Dr. Parkin is enthusiastic over the results
which have been attained through
the Cecil Rhodes' scholarships, and
as he Is the eexcutive of this trust
lie has a great deal of interesting
matter concerning it to report. It
was eight years ago when he started
this work, and since that time he has
made many journeys throughout the
English speaking countries of the
world. He came here from Los Angeles and will proceed to the east,
after visiting Victoria, through Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and
several slates of the Union.
"There are," said Dr. Parkin, "at
the present time 180 Rhodes' scholars at the University of Oxford," and
he continued his information by
handing out the forllowing statement
for publication:
"As regards the Dominion we have
twenty-four students in attendance
at the university. The prairie provinces, Alberta and Saskatchewan,
will be given an additional scholarship later on. The representation
from .those provinces is a ijoint one
at present.
"There are also two scholarships
for each state of the American Union.
Hitherto several of the States have
not been able to furnish men up to
tiie standard we require. I have lately been discussing the American position carefully with their leading
educationists, and they are all agreed
that we might attain greater results
by some modification of the scholarships. This, however, is a matter that
will be decided by ihe board of trustees, which includes Earl Rosebeiy,
Lord Milner, Earl Grey, Dr. Jameson,
Sir Louis Michell and Mr. B. G.
Hawksley, a distinguished London
solicitor. The seventh member was
the late Mr. Alfred Belt, who died
three years ago, leaving $10,000,000
to back up Mr. Rhodes' ideas in
South Africa.
"American students to Oxford tell
me that there is no university in the
United States where they could get so
wide or comprehensive an acquaint-
the union, a condition that could not
be predicated of any American university.
"I might add that the fact that
selected men are sent from every
province of Canada to live together
for three years will have a unifying
effect on the Dominion. I have lately been meeting a large number of
old scholars from the United States
and have not met one who is not devoted to Oxford and affirmed that Oxford has something to give Americans which America needed badly.
For one thing, they say everywhere
that they wish they could get the
Britisli sense of fair play and generosity in sp ' instilled into American
athletics.
"Each student sent to Oxford geH
$1,500 for the three years to covet
expenses. Last year we had 185 in
attendance. I am very anxious for
Canada to have a deep sense of responsibility in selecting its ablest students. As a Canadian I feel strongly
on this point.
"For instance I don ot think there
is anything in England today by
which Americans are so closely judged as by the ninety young Americans
living at Oxford. The same is true in
a different degree of Canada. It is a
matter of the utmost importance for
this country that every man sent
there should be representative of
something that is best in Canadian
character and education.
"Before undertaking the present
tour I visited Soutii Africa, looking
over educational conditions there. I
went via the Red Sea and visited all
parts from Zambesi lo the Cape. The
political and educational situation
there is intensely interesting. Nothing strikes a visitor more than the
extraordinary way in which Mr,
Cecil Rhodes left his impress on the
whole country, the magnificent
schemes he initiated and In the great
gifts he made to    the    public.    The

great Ideas he tried to carry out and
there is nothing in Soutii Africa today that strikes one more than the

NORTHERN AUSTRALIA
Ricll Territory it is Believed Will be
Added to the Commonwealth
Dr. Barrett, of Melbourne, Australia, who has just, completed a tour
of the Malay Federated states, is optimistic regarding the northern territory to be taken over by the commonwealth in the new year. He considers the territory well adapted for
white settlement. During the course
of an interview he said: "I have
come to the conclusion that our great
northern territory can be colonized
by white people, providing certain
areas are marked out, and with these
areas carefully under the jurisdiction of medical men, so that all tropical diseases could be exterminated.
The lessons of the east have tought
me that there are no insurmountable
difficulties in the way of white colon,
ization, Climate should never keep
the white man from the northern
territory. It is only the attendant
disease that prevents him.
"In the Federated Malay states the
malaria, berl berl and dysentry. All
these are now being combated by
medical men, nnd the stales' climate
Is far worse than that of the northern territory of Australia. Colonists
In a tropical climate often feel the
want of periodical changes. Well, if
the transcontinental railway, which
our political friends talk about,
comes off, the northern territory colonist will be provided with a cheap
and expeditious means of securing
the necessary change In southern
Australia."
Questioned as to his views regarding the scope for rubber plantations
in the territory, Dr. Barrett said the
country is most assuredly adapted for
the purpose. A remarkable feature
about the rubber industry is that the
trees succeed In all sorts of climates
and soils. The fact, of the northern
territory possessing a dry season does
not debar It from growing rubber.

The Optimist having gone from
one extreme to the other relative to
the G.T.P. taxation question now
finds fault With those Who have advocated a rational course of dealing
witli the whole question from the
start. It is fair to say that between
the dates when such opposite positions were taken by thai paper a regeneration in a certain sense took
place in connection with it and an
interest representing less than one
quarter of the stock of the paper
passed into the hands of members,
of the present city council, the persons responsible on the one side fori
the solution of the question. The
Optimist denies that these men in
any sense dictate the policy of that
paper. That may be, but incidentally
it cannot fail to be noticed that tho
; ttltude taken by that section of the j
council and the tendency of the Optimist on the subject became wonderfully unanimous contemporaneous
with ihe regeneration referred to.
This however, we admit does not
affect the merits of the case. The
Journal stands where it lias always
stood on tliis question—in favor of;
business-like settlement—one that
would commend itself to the citizens [
of Prince Rupert, who constitute the,
final court in this matter. We always j
were opposed to stampeding the j
council in a settlement. We advocated that body negotiating a settlement
that would appeal to the citizens as
just. We still advocate that, but we
must admit there are evidences that
the present council has not made
very good use of its time. We were
held to be acting the part of a
demagogue when we were forced to
express the opinion that there were
evidences that members of the council were fostering this matter for the
purpose of appealing as demagogues
to the public at election time.
Such a charge against us is untrue
and the minority interests in the
Optimist who are serving on the
council know it. The Journal is as
loyal to Prince Rupert and to its interests as any member of the council. It has never sought to sacrifice
the interests of the city. It has in
the interests of the place sought that
the two parties in this controversy—
the city council and the G.T.P.—
keep in touch until a basis of settlement is reached that could be put
before the people of Prince Rupert
/ith the endorsation of the council
and be reasonably expected to be endorsed in turn by the people.
We do not see any signs of the
demagogue in that. It is weakness
itself for the appeal to be made to
outsiders, such as a newspaper, to
suggest a basis of settlement. If the
members of the city council who
have held secret conferences with
the G.T.P., and we do not charge
anything wrong in their so meeting,
and who for several months have had
all the information on the subject,
are not in a position to suggest anything and must admit themselves as
impotent, how are outsiders to be
expected to solve It. If the council
Is helpless in the matter, why do they
not say so and step out of the way?
There are none who will be prepared
to admit that all the fault Is on one
side in the matter and that the G.
T. P, officials are so irrational as to
be beyond hope of anything like reasonable action being agreeable to
them, We believe the matter could
be adjusted if properly handled. It
is no purl of our duly lo attempt to
prejudice the city's case in any way.

Some one is wasting gray matter
(of an exceedingly pale hue) as well
as printer's ink, in a vain endeavor
io defend the licensed liars and the
liquor traffic of Prince Rupert In an
article which appears in lasi Tuesday's issue of one of the local papers,
lie is corercl in comparing Prince
Rupert to Chilliwack, which together
iwill Prince Rupert will take an advanced and up-to-date step forward
in their march of progress and business prosperity on December 14th.
And it is only a question of a few
months—or years, at most—when
both Vancouver and Victoria will rid
themselves of this—humanity's
greatest curse and mosl unrelenting
business foe and destroyer—the licensed   liquor  traffic.
All this writer tells us is interesting if true. He might have told
us more, for instance that two other
rivals of I'riuce Rupert, namely Bellingham and Everett, Washington,
both cities having populations of over
30,000, had voted "dry" on November Sth, 1910, and that large numbers of people seeking homes on the
Pacific Coast will he attracted to
these cities by their cleanliness, and
because they offered them "a good
place in which to live and work and
educate their children," towns that
are apt to be free now from the
evil and contaminating influences of
the bar and the White Slave trader,
both of which go hand in hand "seeking whom they may devour."
The trouble with this writer and
all other liquor enthusiasts and apologists is that they make the mistake
of trying to place the liquor business
on the same level as other businesses. This cannot be done because it
cannot take such rank. If it could
it would not be subject to the police
powers of the seevral provinces. It
is not a legitimate business such as
selling dry goods, groceries and hardware. It cannot be placed on the
same plane as the sale of milk and
food stuffs. In the "Canada Temperance Act" the Dominion Government
is simply saying that no person has
an inherent right to sell intoxicants
as a.beverage and to a certain extent the government at Ottawa is
offering to the people of British Columbia the authority to deal with
tiie business as they please, even to
exterminating it. It is not probable
that this decision will ever be reversed, nor that this power will ever
be taken away from the people.
License is no Protection
Nothing more harsh has ever been
said about the liquor traffic than can
be found in the court decisions.
The liquor business ahs no standing. The government license is in
no way a protection to the saloon
business. The saloon-keeper may
have a government license, but the
i people can put him out of business
just the same. The courts have declared time and again that the- liquor traffic is a prolific source of
m^ery and crime, that it is a menace
to public morals and public health,
and that the hand of the legislature
cannot be stayed In dealing harshly
with It, even to eliminating it. Of
what other business have the courts
said such things?
The bar does not help business.
The liquor traffic does not help a
city. It is customary and a common
thing for the beneficiaries of the licensed bar, and tho White Slave traffic and of oilier evil conditions, lo
make the plea thai any efforl io bet-
ter conditions will hurt tin. business
of the city nnd keep strangers and
desirable people away from ii. just us
the writer in the article referred to
nt the beginning of tliis has tried to
do. it is ti cheap ruse, and in the
ljght of present day facts an abso-
lutely worthless one. Innumerable
cities in the west, all of which are'
in a greater of less degree rivals of
I Prince Ruperl, prove the contrary lo
; be true. We cite only two—the cases
of Minneapolis, Minn., and Los Angeles. Sal. Discussing the fight for
morality in Minneapolis a few years
ago, Judge Frederick V. Brown says
thai "when the grand jury and good
citizens banded together" io clean
the city, "many of the timid said
thai the notoriety given Minneapolis
through exposing the corruption of
Its public officials would resell in
keeping people away from Minneapolis. '  Judge Brown adds: "The result

Judge Young.
Dated   the   17th   day   of   November,
1910.
UPON THE APPLICATION of
John Hugh McMullin, Official Administrator for part of the County of
Atlin, for leave to swear to the death
of the above-named Humbert Comin,
Giacome Guidolin, and Sante Trouant, deceased, upon hearing C. V.
Bennett, counsel for the Official Administrator, and upon reading the
affidavits of Isaia Comin and Pietre
Fierin respectively, filed herein,
IT IS ORDERED that the said
Official Administrator shall be allowed to swear to the respective
deaths of the said Humbert Comin,
Giacome Guidolin, and Sante Trouant, deceased, as having occurred on
the 2Sth day of October, 1910, at the
expiration of two weeks from the
first publication of notice of this order, unless in the meantime proof
is furnished that the said Humbert
Comin, Giacome Guidolin and Sante
Trouant was or were alive subsequently to the said 28th day of October, 1910; such proof may be
given in writing to the Registrar of
the County Court of Atlin at the
Court House, Prince Rupert, B.C.
and it is Further ordered
that the said Official Administrator
do publish notice of this order in The
Journal, a newspaper published
weekly at Prince Rupert, B.C., for
the space of two weeks.

was just the opposite. The census
figures reecntly published show that
Minneapolis has gained approximately 100,000 people in the last ten
years, while its growth in business,
building and manufacturing enterprises has been wonderful in that
period."
Judge Brown rightly declares that
"No man wishing to engage in legitimate business will be frightened
away from a city because of an effort toward civic cleanliness." The
fact is the only persons who are
driven away from a city by efforts to
keep the city morally clean are those
persons a really righteous city can
afford to lose.
Of similar import Is the statement of A. D. Warner of Los Angeles, who referring to the Harper
recall movement, says that "the best
advertisement Los Angeles ever got
was when It advertised to the world
that it was going to clean house and
rid the community of thieves, gamblers and other leeches of society,"
and he adds: "Everybody predicted
during the period of recall and publicity given to the degradation of
the city that the next year would be
dead. The year after there were
more visitors than ever, business was
belter, bank clearings greater and a
more general period  of prosperity."
Despite these sayings we will no
doubt continue to hear the loud,
lusty and corrupl cry Hint Prince
Ruperl business will lie hurt because
tiie people of this city insist upon a
reasonable amount of official and social decency, just as though Prince
Rupert's prosperity depended upon
saloon-keepers, grafters, White Slave
traffickers, gamblers and others living beyond the pale and respectability of the law. The best and greatest advertisement Prince Rupert
could possibly have would be the
statement that this city had for all
lime parted company with this class
of undesirable citizens, who would
befoul the atmosphere of the community by living in unrestrained
lawlessness; by grafting and gambling; by trafficking in while slaves,
and by a course of conduct which
lias perhaps already prostituted the
law and corrupted the source of justice.

TO IMPROVE FRASER
New Westminster.—Members of
Fraser River delegation have gone
to Ottawa to seek an interview with
Sir Wilfrid Laurier regarding improvements to the Fraser River. The
delegates will travel in a private car
which will leave from New Westminster.
The members decided to take a
united stand for the improvements
to the river. It was made quite
clear that there would be no North or
South Arm controversy between
those representing these two interests, but that all would pull for the
sugar, and at the Wallaceburg factory 16 per cent but a product of
5,000 acres in Ontario is being shipped * • factories in Michigan. The
product of 8,200 acres in that province is marketed at Wallaceburg and
Berlin, where the average price is
about $5,86 per ton, or better than
$57.80 per acre.
Computed at the average local
prices, the market value of potatoes
this year is $33,446,000; turnips and
other roots, $21,444,000; hay and
clover, $149,716,000; fodder corn,
HI,957,000;  sugar beets, $887,000.
The report on fall wheat sown this
year shows an area of 790,000 acres,
whereof 682,500 acres are In Ontario, and 107,800 acres in Alberta.
Last year the area was 609,200 acres
for Ontario, and 98,000 in Alberta.
The condition of the crop is reported at 9S.4 0 per cent, as compared
with 93.60 per cent.
The per cent of tall ploughing
completed this year, compared with
the area planned for, is loss than

a period one month earlier. The per

in the same way, is somewhat lower,

THE  PRINCE  RUPERT  JOURNAL
RESOLUTION  PASSED
Decision Reached on Public Question at
the Conservative Convention
in Nelson.
Party Stands for White Immigration
For This Province—Other Points
Touched Upon
At the recent Conservative convention, held ln Nelson, there were some
important rsolutions passed bearing
upon public questions. In the early
stages an unanimous resolution expressing confidence in Premier McBride was carried. It was as follows:—
"That this convention affirms Its
unabated confidence In the administration and policy of the McBride
government, and views with especial
satisfaction the development of the
new railway policy and the government's uncompromising attitude upon the question of a 'white British
Columbia'."
A resolution reiterating confidence
ln Mr. R. L. Borden, as the party's
federal  leader,  was next  in  order.
For Colonization
The incorporation of a white colonization plank in the policy of the
party in British Columbia was proposed by William Blakemore in a
resolution which in several particulars takes rank as the most important considered by this convention. It
found a ready seconder In Captain
Armstrong,   and  read:—
"Whereas the development of the
agricultural industry of the province
is not keeping pace with the increase
other industries, and
"Whereas, the permanent prosperity of any country depends upon the
cultivation of the soil, and the local
productions of the necessaries of
life, and
"Whereas, the present tendency in
British Columbia Is to flock to the
cities, which may ln the near future
present a serious problem, as affecting the cost of living and the providing of cheap food for the people;
"Be It resolved, that the time has
arrived when it is desirable to take
some steps to assue the placing of a
larger number of permanent settlers
upon the land, and the government is
, requested to take this matter under
its serious consideration and to undertake the work of colonization with
the people of our own race."
The resolution carried.
Indian Reserves
Mr. Churchill and Mr. Price were
brief and businesslike in presenting
a resolution congratulating the government on the satisfactory settlement of the Songhees reserve question, and favoring similar action elsewhere in the province where similar
reserv problems present themselves.
That Vancouver, Surrey, Kamloops, Langley and other provincial
centres have their Indian reserve
puzzles was emphasized, and the
government was given ample credit
for having appointed a representative who in four days had accomplished the adjustment of Hie Songhees reserve difficulty, which had
baffled all efforts during fifty years
before.
The resolution prevailed.
Irrigation
Mr. McKelvie moved, seconded by
Mr. Lang, and supported by Mr.
Maitland:
"That the provincial government
take into consideration the following
resolutions passed at the annual
meeting of the Western Canada Irrigation Association, at Kamloops,
on August 4th:
(a) "That we petition the provincial government to take such steps as
will lead to the enactment of laws
pertaining to irrigation projects under similar conditions to those in
which they render aid to railway
projects."
(b) "That the provincial government be requested to place under reserve suitable loratlons for reservoirs for storing water Intended for
Irrigation   purposes."
This was carried.
Liquor Law
Dr. Rose of Nelson and Mr. Edmonds of New Westminster introduced the amended resolution touching
the provincial liquor traffic act
which came to the convention with
the endorsement of the Nelson association.   This resolution read:—
"Nelson Conservative association:
 That this convention endorse the
following resolution passed at public
meeting of Conservatives in Nelson
on November 4th.
"Resolved: That the provincial
government be respectively urged to
amend the liquor license act by providing:—
"(A) Better means of identification by liquor sellers of prohibited
persons either by protographs or by
some other means approved by the
administration.
"(B) That persons duly prohibited from obtaining liquor as provided
in the section 76-76 of the said act,
may be fined or punished as well aa
the liquor vendor when an Infraction
of the law is proven to have taken
place.
"(C) That the notice prohibiting
the sale of liquor to certain persons
now required by the said liquor license act to be served on all vendors
of liquor, shall be also served on
such prohibited persons in every Instance."
The mover and seco .der explained wherein the proposed amendment
would facilitate the operation of the
act and remove an admitted hardship
now bearing upon the vendors. For
this hardship it was agreed that the
changes provided will provide an effective remedy.
The resolution met with unanimous favor.
Telephones
Mr. King of North Vancouver proposed:—
"That this convention reiterate Its
opinion that it would be ln the best
Interests of British Columbia either
to nationalize the telephone systems
for the province or to pass an act
compelling all telephone companies
operating therein to exchange calls
free of charge."
The mover explained that the telephone question had long been a
burning Issue from Okanagan to the
coast.
While personally favoring telephone nationalization, it might be
possible that the government was not
ready for such action and the latter
clause of the resolution would provide a way for competition in rates
and consequent Improvement In both.
The resolution carried, as did one
providing that special encouragement
be given ex-service men to settle in
British Columbia.
AWAKENING CARIBOO
Old  Mining  District  of   Province  is
to Have a Motor
Train.
Automobile With Four Cars Hauling Forty Tons Will be
Operated
Determined effort to abolish the
cocaine evil in Montreal is being
made, and Dr. T. J. Finnle, M.L.A.
for St. Lawrence, will introduce a
bill at the coming session of the provincial legislature, which will, if
passed, abolish this trade. The hold
this evil has taken upon some certain
class in Montreal, Is startling, and
rigorous methods are being adopted.
The mode of freight transportation
in the Cariboo is to be revolutionized.
The old familiar prairie schooners
that have traversed the Cariboo road
from Ashcroft to Barkerville ever
since the famous gold rush in 1860,
will soon be no more.
The latest type of prairie schooner
which is to be used as a connecting
link between Ashcroft, Barkerville
and possibly Fort George has arrived
in Vancouver from the United Kingdom.
It Is an automobile train. The train
consists of an automobile with four
cars attached. The outfit was constructed by the Daimler Motdr Car
Company of Coventry, England, and
Is consignd to the Canadian-Renard
Road Train Company, Ltd., of Vancouver.
The steering automobile Is equipped with a 100 horsepower Daimler
silent Knight engine and ts capable
of pulling forty tons at six miles an
hour. Each trailer is guaranteed to
carry ten tons. The estimated cost
of the train is 35,000.
The train arrived in sections and
was put together at the C. P. R.
wharf by mechanics sent out by the
company for the purpose. Everything
is now in readiness for a trial spin
and it is probable that the train will
make a tour of Vancouver. This is
the first outfit of its kind to be
operated in Canada.

ALL RED CABLE
Atlantic Lines May Pass Under Control of United States
The announcement that the Atlantic cables may very shortly pass under the control of a great United
States trust has aroused renewed interest in the question of an All-
Red" cable route— that Is to say, an
"All-British" line between the Mother Country and the Oversea Domin
ions, says a London exchange. The
Atlantic cable is the only part of that
connection which is not "All British"
but it is a vital part of the link between England, Canada and Australasia. The cables between Canada
and Australia and New Zealand are
state-owned, and controlled by what
is known as the Pacific cable board,
composed of representatives of the
joint owners, threat Britain, Canada
and Australia.
For a considerable time an agitation has been in progress for securing the possession of a similar state-
owned cable across the Atlantic. The
Commonwealth of Australia has supported the proposal. Canada also
favors it.' The present labor government of Australia has recently had
its attention drawn to the question,
and is prepared to co-operate with
Great Britain and Canada. But the
British government has been apparently too much occupied with other
matters to take up this great Imperial question as an urgent need.
At present, as has been said, the
Pacific cable board control and own
all the cables from Australia and
New Zealand to Canada, the Atlantic
companies continuing the communication with Great Britain from Montreal. The result is that where any
question of through rates for communications is concerned the Pacific
cable board Is to a certain extent in
the hands of the private companies
owing the Atlantic cables. The Pacific cables which were laid down at
a cost of £21,000,000, touch the Nor.
folk Island, Suva, the Fiji Islands
and Fanning on the route to Vancouver Island. So far as South Africa
is concerned it is served by the Eastern Telegraph Company—an "All-
Red" route—there being two lines,
via Gibraltar, Malta, Alexandra, Suez
Zanzibar, Mocambique, Delagoa Bay,
Durban and Capetown, or, alternately, via Madeira, St. Vincent, Ascension, St. Helena and Capetown.
Inside. The need of a resident clergyman was pointed out to the bishop,
who promised to supply one, and
meanwhile services will be held twice
a month on the second and fourth
Sundays during the winter. During
his stay in Stewart, Bishop Du Vernet
was the guest of Mr. and Mrs. John
Conway. On Christmas day two services will be held, matins and holy
communion In the morning, and an
evening service.

OPENING CITADEL
Salvation Army Will Hold Ceremony in
Connection With it
Sunday.
Major  Morris   Has   Arrived  to  Take
Part  in Connection  With
Function
Major and Mrs. Morris, who have
Charge of the work of the Salvation
Army In Britisli Columbia, arrived
Wednesday on the steamer Prince
Rupert, to be present at the opening
ceremonies in connection with the
Army's new citadel in tliis city. The
latter will commence at 2..'ill Sunday
afternoon immediately in front of
the new building. Mr. Wm. Manson,
M.P.P., will preside, anil will be
supported by the clergy and lending
citizens of Prince Unpen. In the new
building al 3 p.m. Major Morris will
deliver an address on "The Evolution of the Salvation Army."
Major Morris has expressed himself as delighted with the appearance
of the Army's new buildings. Hlie
states that Mr. II. D. Morrison, the
contractor, is to be heartily commended for the erection of the same.
The Major also speaks vry hopefully
of the Army's work right from Lethbridge in Alberta, through to the
Yukon including Alaska, over which
he has the oversight.
It is expected that the Army's
opening service tomorrow will be of
a very exceptional and interesting
character, and Ensign Johnstone, the
officer in charge of the local work
here, extends a cordial invitation to
every citizen to attend the services
and inspect the new citadel which is
certainly a great credit to this fast
growing city.
Ensign Johnstone has made a host
of friends here. His practical way of
dealing with ail questions affecting
the city's welfare and the aiding of
those in need has won him an enviable position among the philan-
trophic workers.
The new citadel will be of great
assistance to the army in its work
here.

WHAT THE "SCOTT
ACT" SAYS
drunkards in the short space of a
year, the wonder is that anyone will
even for a moment think that Local
Option is a boon. If this system of
prohibition decreased the number of
drinkers each year, there would be
no fault to find with it at all. But
on the contrary drinking is on the
increase.
"A man can well understand how
in the early stages of the game there
would be a few drunks as it could be
argued that they had not got used to
the law. But such an argument cannot now be advanced. They have not
got used to Local Option and they
never will. Had the inebriates last
year been 165 and the number this
year 106, there might be come excuse
tor the system as it could be said
that it was at least putting some kind
of a stop on drink.
"But the records show otherwise.
Local Option is not only failing to
check the liquor traffic, it is pushing
it ahead and doing more to make
drunkards in one year than the open
bar would do in two. The police court
records do not err. They show how

citizens are beginning to realize that
a few years ago the town was better
off than it is today under the new
liquor regime. Certainly not an
auspicious sign for Local Option."

It is found that there lias been u decided Increase, tor In the year ending
September 30th, 1909, there were
